Students learn to understand dynamics of cultural encounters in the mediterranean from an interdisciplinary perspective. They can make connections with discussions within their own subjects of study and learn about questions, methods and approaches of other human and social sciences.

The Mediterranean has long been a point of intersection for ship routes. It has been influenced by the conquests of ancient empires as well as by colonization, but also through trade exchange and migrations. Migrational movements and the colonial perspective is far from being merely focused on the north, as often conceived by the euro-centristic gaze. In fact a broad historical, archaeological, philological and ethnological perspective can make other phenomenon of exchange and mutuality apparent. Cultural production at the micro-level is especially interesting, as well as the discoursivation oft he mediterranean as a border area.

 

One central aim oft he research cluster „Cultural Encounters – Cultural Conflicts“ at the University of Innsbruck ist to analyze and understand the cultural production emerging from cultural encounters from a subject oriented perspective.

Lecture series: Changing on a weekly basis, lecturers from different backgrounds in the humanities present research work about the mediterranean from the perspectiveof their disciplines. A discussion round follows after the lectures.

Written test.
